    Can my buds survive if I lose most of my leaves?

    What will happen to my girls if I lose all or most of my leaves? I have two OG Kush autos that are flowering, and I have been fighting terrible leaf discoloration and dying leaves for weeks. This grow has been really tough.

    This late in the game, what will happen to my buds if she loses all or most of her leaves? Will the buds still grow and mature? Can they have any decent potency?

    Here are the full grow details:

    I originally messed up this grow because I was watering way too much at a time, producing lots of run off. I didn’t know at first that this wasn’t okay with Living Soil. I realized this once I started having leaf problems, and immediately stopped watering to run off and added organic nutrients as well as lots of Living Soil top dressing. They’ve never really recovered.

    Whether I’m feeding plain water or nutes, the pH going in is always in the 6.3 to 6.7 range.

    2 x OG Kush autos from Nirvana, indoors in a 4x4 tent
    Age: 62 days since seeds popped
    Soil: Fox Farm Ocean Forest with Nature’s Living Soil and perlite (“Living Soil” approach, not “Super Soil” approach)
    Nutes: Roots Organic Buddha Bloom, Trinity, and Cal Mag
    Light: Black Dog PhytoMAX-2 600 (615 watts from wall)
    Temperature: Low 70s during lights off, mid 80s with lights on
    Humidity: Mid 50s with lights off, low to mid 40s with lights on
    Ventilation: 8” system with 710 CFM fan pulling through two separate large carbon filters (one tail end and one inline) through very long duct work, resulting in a nice breeze coming out in an adjacent room, and tent walls sucking in decently but not extremely hard
    Small Vornado air circulator inside tent, blowing 24/7 on low, pointed slightly down to not be directly on leaves
    Vornado oscillating tower fan blowjng softly across the full height of the plants for roughly 12 hours per day, staggered 6 on, 6 off, 6 on, 6 off

      Hey Farmbuck. Yeah, I give them 1 Tbsp of Roots Organic Cal Mag at least every other feeding.

      Rik 1 tablespoon sounds like a very hefty dose for 2 plants.

      GreenState thanks for that. 1 Tbsp per gallon is the top of the range they suggest for mature flowering plants (they say 2-3 tsp per gallon). I went with the top of the range because, when I started using it, I was responding to a severe nutrient deficiency caused by watering to way too much run off.
